Bret Michaels I could have died – It was a life or death experience. The Celebrity Apprentice contestant has postponed several concerts. He is recovering in a care facility for diabetics in Texas.

Michaels, 47, was rushed to the hospital on Monday. He had severe stomach pains and was sent to the operating room for an emergency appendectomy. The singer is also suffering from exhaustion.

“While the surgery went well and doctors are optimistic that the rocker will make a full recovery, the fact that he was exhausted due to his rigorous schedule prior to the surgery and coupled with the fact that he has diabetes, the surgery has taken its toll,” his rep said in a statement.

He was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday. Michaels was then checked into the diabetes facility the same day. He is currently in the midst of a long North American tour.

“Even for non-diabetic patients the recovery from surgery can be long and painful,” his rep said. “Doctors were amazed at how good of health Bret was in being a 47-year-old diabetic. However the main focus and concern right now is that he is able to rest, recover and maintain good blood sugar levels while doing so.”

Bret was on the tour bus about 10 minutes before his show. He told everyone that he might have a stomach flu. A doctor was called and evaluated the singer.

“Bret we really don’t think this is the flu,” the doctor said to Michaels. “After the fact, [doctors] told me that if I had gone onstage like I wanted to, it likely would have ruptured… Not good.”

Bret Michaels is best known as the lead vocalist of the band Poison. He also has several solo albums to his credit. He starred in the VH1 reality show “Rock of Love” and is a contestant on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice 3.”

He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of six. Many people thought he was a heroin addict because he injects himself with insulin. He dated and later became engaged to actress and singer Susie Hatton.

Susie Hatton is featured in Poison’s “Fallen Angel” music video released in 1988. Bret has two daughters with Kristi Lynn Gibson, whom he dated from 1994 to 2005. Raine Elizabeth Sychak was born on May 20, 2000, and Jorja Bleu Sychak was born May 5, 2005.

Tony Awards Prompts Fractured Nose

On June 7, 2009, Michaels suffered a fractured nose and cut lip at the Tony Awards show after performing Poison’s song “Nothin’ but a Good Time.” When he turned to exit the stage, a descending piece of the set hit him in the head. He was unable to duck under it and it knocked him on his back.

Emergency Appendectomy Procedure

An appendectomy is the surgical removal of the vermiform appendix. This procedure is normally performed as an emergency when the patient is suffering from acute appendicitis. In the absence of surgical facilities, intravenous antibiotics are used to delay or avoid the onset of sepsis.

It is now recognized that many cases will resolve when treated non-operatively. In some cases, the appendicitis resolves completely. However, inflammatory mass forms around the appendix which makes it a relative contraindication to surgery.

Appendectomy may be performed laparoscopically or as an open operation. Laparoscopy is often used if the diagnosis is in doubt or to hide scars. Advanced pelvic sepsis occasionally requires a lower midline laparotomy.

Recovery Time

The recovery time from the operation varies from person-to-person. Some will take up to three weeks before being completely active. After the surgery has been performed, the patient will have a 2-3 inch scar, which will initially be heavily bruised.
